Forty eight hours after the deadly events in Venezuelan jail Uribana, northwest Venezuela, relatives of inmates ignore the prisoners' whereabouts and desperately await information from the authorities as some 2003 male inmates were relocated among 19 penitentiaries on Sunday.

In the meantime, 61 bodies were delivered to their relatives on Saturday-Sunday. By Sunday mid-afternoon the death toll amounted to 64 whereas 123 people were reported injured.
